Question for anyone with 06' GMC 2500HD/Western Ultramount

    What is the best configuration setting on an 8' western ultra pro series for an 06' GMC 2500HD?
    I went from a lot of ground clearance on my F-250 to almost nothing on the GMC. Here's what I have done so far. Cranked up T-bars so the truck sits nearly level (about 4 turns each side). I changed the 245 tires out with 265's. This brought the gound clearance up from 13in. to about 15in.
    According to Western's congiguration settings on the plow, this means that I would set the plow to configuration No. 2 (15in.) rather than No.1(13in.).
    Is it possible to get into configuration No. 3(16in.-17.5in.) without raising the T-bars up so hi that I have to re-align the truck or kill my tires?

    Do yourself a favor and buy a set of timberns for the front, they run about $150.00 a set.

    Yeah, that was going to be the next step after I get the T-bars to where I need them to be.

    Do they actually raise the truck or do they just not allow sag when load is applied to the front? With the plow on the truck, the truck only sags 7/8 of an inch.

    They make the truck not squat as much when you raise the plow. They will not raise the truck at all.
